The start can be easily approached by taking the chairlift from Pié Tofana.

To reach the chairlift station, you may either drive up the road that departs from state road 48 to Passo Falzarego at Lacedel, or take the Freccia nel Cielo gondola from Cortina centre to Col Druscié and descend along the ski run for about 15 minutes.

Lastly, you may drive almost as far as Rifugio Duca d’ Aosta. Along the SR48 road heading to Passo Falzarego, turn right uphill at Cianzopé and park at the Rifugio Dibona car park.

Before approaching the Via Ferrata, you may take advantage of the dining services offered by Rifugio Duca d’Aosta, while, on top, of Rifugio Pomedes.

Ra Pegna Via ferrata trail runs along the left tower, while Ra Bujela runs along the right one.


Recently designed, the Ra Pegna route, is an excellent training gym for those who wish to attempt equipped trails for the first time and is also suitable for kids.


This route, fairly exposed on the first stretch, is equipped with two board-walks, 7 and 3 m long respectively, and runs on the Pomedes tower “Ra Bujela”. It develops for 150 m up the rocky face and for 100 m along the summit ridge, with 100 m of elevation gain.

Both routes are a great alternative to longer and more demanding ones in case of unstable weather conditions.

Both itineraries can also be combined with two other equipped trails in the area: Sentiero Astaldi and Grotta di Tofana.
